INTEL 80387 PDF

Description[ edit ] The x87 registers form an 8-level deep non-strict stack structure ranging from ST 0 to ST 7 with registers that can be directly accessed by either operand, using an offset relative to the top, as well as pushed and popped. The non-strict stack model also allows binary operations to use ST 0 together with a direct memory operand or with an explicitly specified stack register, ST x , in a role similar to a traditional accumulator a combined destination and left operand. This can also be reversed on an instruction-by-instruction basis with ST 0 as the unmodified operand and ST x as the destination. These properties make the x87 stack usable as seven freely addressable registers plus a dedicated accumulator or as seven independent accumulators.

Description[ edit ] The x87 registers form an 8-level deep non-strict stack structure ranging from ST 0 to ST 7 with registers that can be directly accessed by either operand, using an offset relative to the top, as well as pushed and popped. The non-strict stack model also allows binary operations to use ST 0 together with a direct memory operand or with an explicitly specified stack register, ST x , in a role similar to a traditional accumulator a combined destination and left operand.

This can also be reversed on an instruction-by-instruction basis with ST 0 as the unmodified operand and ST x as the destination. These properties make the x87 stack usable as seven freely addressable registers plus a dedicated accumulator or as seven independent accumulators. This is especially applicable on superscalar x86 processors such as the Pentium of and later , where these exchange instructions codes D9C Despite being natural and convenient for human assembly language programmers, some compiler writers have found it complicated to construct automatic code generators that schedule x87 code effectively.

Such a stack-based interface potentially can minimize the need to save scratch variables in function calls compared with a register-based interface [1] although, historically, design issues in the original implementation limited that potential.

By default, the x87 processors all use bit double-extended precision internally to allow sustained precision over many calculations, see IEEE design rationale. A given sequence of arithmetic operations may thus behave slightly differently compared to a strict single-precision or double-precision IEEE FPU. Since the introduction of SSE2 , the x87 instructions are not as essential as they once were, but remain important as a high-precision scalar unit for numerical calculations sensitive to round-off error and requiring the bit mantissa precision and extended range available in the bit format.

Performance[ edit ] Clock cycle counts for examples of typical x87 FPU instructions only register-register versions shown here. B notation minimum to maximum covers timing variations dependent on transient pipeline status and the arithmetic precision chosen 32, 64 or 80 bits ; it also includes variations due to numerical cases such as the number of set bits, zero, etc.

Like other extensions to the basic instruction set, x87 instructions are not strictly needed to construct working programs, but provide hardware and microcode implementations of common numerical tasks, allowing these tasks to be performed much faster than corresponding machine code routines can.

Also, to clarify, the only difference between a SX and DX is a bit vs. Intel SX Such a stack-based interface potentially can minimize the need to save scratch variables in function calls compared with a register-based interface [1] although, historically, design issues in the intrl implementation limited that potential.

Intel 80386

EFlags The processor was a significant evolution in the x86 architecture, and extended a long line of processors that stretched back to the Intel The predecessor of the was the Intel , a bit processor with a segment -based memory management and protection system. The added a three-stage instruction pipeline, extended the architecture from bits to bits , and added an on-chip memory management unit. This paging translation unit made it much easier to implement operating systems that used virtual memory. It also offered support for register debugging. The featured three operating modes: real mode, protected mode and virtual mode. The protected mode , which debuted in the , was extended to allow the to address up to 4 GB of memory.
